Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?2
The wickeda in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devicesthat they have imagined .
For the wickedboasteth of his heart'sbdesire, and blesseth the covetous , whom the LORDabhorreth .
The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.5
His ways are alwaysgrievous ; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies , he puffeth at them.
He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved : for I shall nevercbe in adversity.
